The Dawn Staley Community Leadership Award is an annual Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) award given since the league's 2008 season, that recognizes a player who is an inspiration in her community and reflects Dawn Staley’s leadership, spirit, charitable efforts and love for the game. This is the same criterion used by the analogous NBA Community Assist Award, given by the NBA since its 2001-02 season.

Every year, each of the WNBA teams nominates one of its players to compete for this award. From these nominees, a designated committee vote for the winner and the WNBA donates $10,000 to a charity that the player chooses on their behalf.[1]
